July 4th Parade
The DOVFD is happy to continue the tradition with our 40th Annual July 4th Parade! The parade this year will be longer (13.2 miles) and will course through the town of Double Oak. With the longer route, and with a faster pace this year (10-15 MPH) we are limiting participation to vehicles only. There are some neighborhoods that we are limiting to DOVFD only due to tight turning points and traffic control. The parade map and approximate times are provided.
